Percentage profit: \(\frac{(TR-TC)}{TC}*100\)

Total Cost (TC)
50($1000) + ($20)(50*200) = $250,000

Percentage profit:
\(\frac{$1,000,000-$250,000}{$250,000}*100\)=

\((\frac{$750,000}{$250,000}*100)= 3 * 100= 300\)
%

Answer B

Similar formula, per batch cost first

Percentage profit =
\(\frac{(TR-TC)}{TC}*100\) <-> \(\frac{GrossProfit}{TC}*100\)

1) Cost price of 1 batch (= 200 tools)?
$1,000 fixed + $20/tool (* 200 tools)
$1,000 + ($20)(200)
$1,000 + $4,000 = $5,000 cost price per batch

2) Total cost (TC) of 50 batches?
(50 * $5,000) = $250,000

3) TR, given = $1,000,000

4) Gross profit = (TR - TC)
($1,000,000 - $250,000) = $750,000

5) Percentage profit =\(\frac{GrossProfit}{TC}*100=\)

\((\frac{$750,000}{$250,000}*100)= 3 * 100= 300\)
%

Answer B

I found it easiest to figure out the total cost of producing a single batch (1000+4000), then figure out the revenue for each batch (20000), so profit is 15000 which is 3 times 5000 which works out to 300%

To be fair I started writing it out the long way before I realized it wasn't required.
